A Second Blog


I usually blog about Russian and Soviet film (giuvivrussianfilm.blogspot.com) but in this blog I will write about other cultural, social and political issues that are not related to Russian or Soviet film.

These topics may include:

cities – especially those such as Trieste, Genova, Moscow, Novokuznetsk and others where I have lived considerable amounts of time;

other places / spaces – the Cinque Terre which I know well having gone there since childhood;

some political or social issues;

linguistics and translation;

Literature – especially Russian, Italian, Spanish and Argentinian;

Other cultural fields;


About afoniya

I am a translator, language teacher, independent film scholar who is interested in many aspects of culture. I have my own blog on Russian and Soviet cinema at http://giuvivrussianfilm.blogspot.com and I have also written for journals such as Film Philosophy and Bright Lights as well as Ribbed magazine. Outside of film my interest runs to language, politics, literature and my world is centred around the Meditteranean, Russia, Southern Ukraine as well as the UK.
